Hopefully they can be relocated before an incident occurs.

You mean alligators, as in the big, toothy reptiles that are native to the southern United States? O_o How the heck did they end up in China??

They are not captured yet and it is not known if they'll be sent to a zoo, or relocated. Wait, relocate them? To where? As Lois writes, alligators are native to the southern America, and nobody would believe they have come swimming all the way to Japan. (Well, unless you intentionally wrote China, let me correst Nagasaki is in Japan, not China, Lois) But if they escaped from someone who'd kept them as pet, or are abondoned, I don't think they should be sent back to such an ex-owner.

I'm sure Japan will be willing to "help"!
